Bluebeard - Petit Bleu
Small Shrub with Late Season Color
Petit Bleu Bluebeard is a tiny, deciduous shrub with ornamental appeal. These look wonderful in a mixed border, a perennial bed or as part of a wildlife garden. You could also effectively use a few as container plants on your patio.
Your Petit Bleu Bluebeard is a Proven Winners selection, and it’s easy to understand why it’s such a popular choice. When many of your summer flowers have begun their decline, Petit Bleu Bluebeard will be ready to being its show.
From late summer and into fall, this delicate, little shrub will be an asset to not only the ornamental appeal of your yard, but also to the butterflies and other pollinators seeking a late season treat.
Clusters of petite, blue flowers amid tall stalks will rise up above the vibrant green of the glossy, mounded foliage. Even the foliage itself is of interest, and a light brush of your hand will release its aromatic appeal.
Petit Bleu Bluebeard will grow to about 30-inches tall with a 24-inch spread. It has a compact, tight growth habit, and does best in loose, well-drained soils. Petit Bleu is drought-tolerant once established and deer resistant.
It has no significant disease or insect issues to be concerned with. It will grow beautifully in its natural state, but doesn’t mind pruning if you’d like to take a hand in its shaping.
Petit Bleu Bluebeard certainly gives a lot back for the small amount of space and time it requires. With Petit Bleu, you’ll get a great return on your investment!
